Pompano Beach, FL
Overview of Pompano Beach
Known to many in the area as "Florida's Warmest Welcome," Pompano Beach is just north of Fort Lauderdale in the heart of southern Florida's Gold Coast. Famous for sport fishing and endless fun in the sun, many Pompano Beach apartments for rent will give you all the access you need to relaxing beach living. With a population of nearly 100,000, according to data from the U.S. Census Bureau, this thriving beach community has seen a small increase in population growth over the past 10 years.
Living in Pompano Beach, FL
Southern Florida was discovered by Spanish settlers in the 16th century, but the areas of Pompano Beach had been inhabited by Seminole Native Americans for thousands of years. Florida was unsettled for years due to first Spanish and then Seminole rule until the 1800s. After a wide variety of immigrants began moving into Florida, the population mainly consisted of citrus farmers and blockade runners until after well after the Civil War.
It wasn't until 1896 that the railroad first came to Pompano Beach. Many of the small communities were established in the area for trade and commerce. Although no one knows for sure, folklore suggests that the name of the city stems from a writing that Frank Sheen put on a survey map to indicate that he had a tasty filet of fish in the area called a "pompano." Local legend has it that the name stuck and the community has been called Pompano Beach to this day.
Pompano Beach saw most of its residential boom during the 1920s as a tourist destination, but many visitors became attracted to the rich soils and began planting citrus fruits here, specifically pineapple. Much of Florida became a training camp during World War II, and Pompano Beach was no exception. After the war, the city transitioned into its own municipality and post-war economic growth flourished in the area until the centennial of Pompano Beach's founding in 2008.
Pompano Beach Work and Study
Since citrus fruit farming has always been at the heart of Pompano Beach's livelihood it makes sense that three of the top employers in the Pompano Beach area are grocers, according to the city's comprehensive annual financial report. However, since the area is a beach community, the top employer in the city is Pompano Park. Companies based in the Pompano Beach area include the Associated Grocers of Florida and PetMeds. Since the city is exhibiting growth as well as job opportunity, finding Pompano Beach apartments should come easy to working professionals.

This university offers a wide variety of degrees in several fields of study, and provides hand-on training so that residents can develop the skills they need for their career.
Rentals in Pompano Beach, FL and Cost of Living
Since oceanfront property in southern Florida doesn't come cheap, the cost of living index in Pompano Beach is higher than the national average. As of 2009, the median gross rent was just under $1000 per month. However, since the median gross earnings in the area are higher than the average Florida town, living in Pompano Beach should still be an affordable venture.
